Review: One night changed everything for Nick and Joy, once high school sweethearts, now competing for the same position as the principal in their hometown. 

A heartwarming romance of second chances, forgiveness, and family. Joy loves her job as a first grade teacher, and I loved her passion for teaching. I liked that the backstory unfolds over the course of the book, keeping me engaged and made it more satisfying to have to "work" for the backstory. 

Nick is a fantastic father to his boys, working hard to be more present than he was in the past. He wants to do what is best for his family and is surprised to find Joy still living in the town that he left so many years before. I liked that they were both Christians, and that it took time to build trust and unpack everything that had happened in the past. The boys, Tyler and Jordan are adorable, each with distinct personalities and mannerisms. I loved how they take to Joy right away.

Overall, a highly enjoyable read that was hard to put down. I also liked how Joy's sister also makes an appearance in this book as well. Wonderful characters, and a compelling storyline in this heartwarming second chance romance.

 I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

More from Jill

Back in 2019, when my editor sent me a cover mock-up for my third Love Inspired book A Mother for His Twins, I was thrilled to see the art department had used a picture of my hero’s twin boys, Jordan and Tyler Capello.

I had so much fun developing the characters of these two little rascals. Although they were twins, I wanted to make sure they each had their own unique personality.

Once I had Tyler’s character sketch completed, I went to work developing Jordan. Unlike his brother who is the outgoing one of the two, I wanted Jordan to be more quiet and shy than his twin. That’s when I decided to draw on my own experience as a child.

Like Jordan, I had a speech impediment when I was a child. I was unable to pronounce the letter R. Because of this, I was teased by my classmates. To make matters worse, once a week, my speech teacher would come and pull me from my classroom for my private session. I can still hear the giggles and murmuring that filled the room. Thankfully, with a lot of instruction and practice, I was able to overcome the impediment.

Life is full of obstacles. Looking back at what we’ve overcome gives us the confidence to keep pressing forward when we know God will never leave us.
